2010 Acura ZDX revealed at 2009 Orange County Auto Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 15, 2009

The 2009 Orange County Auto Show was where the all-new 2010 Acura ZDX made its auto show debut as a production model. The ZDX arrived at Acura dealerships in the winter of that year. The model came with prominent styling, exceptional performance, and some advanced technology features.

It featured striking coupe-like styling with the additional benefit of having flexibility and an imposing presence. Its design, development, and production were done entirely in North America. The dedicated Acura Design Studio in Torrance, California, did the styling of the ZDX from start to finish.

Acura stayed true to the original sketch made by Michelle Christensen, its first female designer. She designed the model to have sensuous curves, shoulders that were deeply sculpted, and solid character lines. The 2010 Acura ZDX had design features that include:

- All-glass panoramic roof stretches from the windshield to the tailgate, which make it the longest continuous glass surface in the automotive industry;

- Rear door handles that were smartly concealed within in the C-pillar to add to its coupe-like styling; and

- Highly luxurious interior features a standard hand-stitched leather dash, door panels and sculpted center console.

Powering the ZDX is a 3.7-liter VTEC V-6 that delivers 300 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. Available as standard on the ZDX is the brand’s exclusive Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system that offers superior handling as well as first-rate all-season capability.

The ZDX will be on display at the Acura booth at the Orange County Auto Show from October 15 to 18, 2009.
